Ah, yes.  Side projects.  I know them well by their level of not-finishedness.

If only there was more time and motivation in the week.  :'(

I knew it.  Hicks' decent into the mouth of madness has finally begun...



Wadya mean finally?

I wanna see that fan comic!  ;D

Hopefully someday! I did actually start writing after years of just working on the concept.  :laugh:

On the video, I really liked it, it was well made and very detailed in presentation. Would like to see more.

Having not read the Rogue Series or the novel. I enjoyed it very much. 8)

Thank you, both.  :) Hopefully we'll be able to get them out relatively regularly. I've already got an idea for my next one!  :)

I can so relate to unfinished side projects. My to "read" pile is growing daily! :D

That pile will never ever end.  :laugh:

Nice video Hicks, It will be great to see a series of videos about the lore of the franchise from AVPgalaxy, heh just make sure you cite the sources and give credit where its due if you happen to use anything from other places.  :laugh:

At least so far, you've kept it original, some videos about the lore have the youtubers literally read right off our wiki without crediting us.  :P

Video looks great, I also noticed the absence of the Kenner King.
I am actually working on an article about the Alien King myself.
Looks like you're doing keyword research, which is good.

You can guarantee I would cite sources. I know that's a bug bear about some existing videos on YouTube. That said, I don't intend to have to as like I did with this one, I'll be going directly to the source and doing my own research.

I'm not sure what I would have been able to say outside of "Kenner also did one." I don't believe he came with a mini-comic. Did the Kenner figures used to come with any lore on the back of the cards? I can't recall.

I think the Kenner King was one of the few missing a comic. The other Kenner comics didn't reference him either. Not sure about the back card though.

The Kenner toys are notoriously wacky, they made a whole line of different Xeno tpyes like gorilla, snake and even giant facehuggers.  :laugh:

If that is a confession to being insane then prepare to be sectioned for an eternity!

Haven't checked this new lore video out yet as I won't be able to hear it where i am,  I take it by the title its about the newer information gained from the cold forge?

Finally watched a few of these, happy to see AVPG getting into this and they're nicely put together. Maybe it's me, but I feel like I'm noticing more scrutiny than ever with the xenomorph thing. I always just took it with an assumed amount of license in-universe. Gorman uses it generally as mentioned anyways, but I guess it got messier from there.

And hey, Alien is a broad term too, but we give that one a damn pass just because it was the name of the film and looks pretty on officially licensed coloring books...!

(:P :P)

In response to the second video, about the facehuggers -

Personally I have always preferred the idea that whatever the Hugger was inserting into the host was more along the lines of a "renaissance semen." Utilizing host DNA to finalize the early stage of gestation. This would also potentially allow the injected material to pass through the esophageal wall and attach near the heart and lungs. It would explain the very adaptable and dynamic nature of the Alien appearances and cross breeds, and just how nastily the genetic material of Ripley seemed to fuse with the Alien in Resurrection. It's amorphous and subversive.

Also, Hicks, you guys are doing a wonderful job on these videos. Very entertaining, atmospheric, and informative. Very high quality audio, as well.
